Are all the LEDs on the wireless router are on?
When you reset the wireless router wait at least 1/2 min before powering the router up.
Right click on the wireless connection and click on Repair, this will force the wireless router to issue a new IP address to the wireless card. If the the red x is still on the wireless conection then :-
To check if the wireless card can communicate with the wireless router, ping the IP address of the wireless router, (this is the IP address that is used to login and configure the wireless router) if you get no reply and all packets are lost, then connect a network cable from the laptop's RJ45 port to the wireless router's RJ45 port and do the ping test again.
If you still get no reply and lost packets then most likely you have a faulty wireless router.
Get back to me on the results of the tests and I can then advise what to do next.
